Obamacare reaches goal, as seven million people sign up.
After a surge of sign-ups on the last day for open enrollment, Obamacare is on track to hit the White House’s original target of 7 million people signing up, a senior administration official said Tuesday.
President Barack Obama will address the milestone with a statement from the Rose Garden at 4:15 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
On Monday, more than 4.8 million visits were made to HealthCare.gov and 2 million calls were made to the call center, the official said. The administration is awaiting final numbers from the federal and state exchanges, the official said.
